The Look Ahead: Beginning Belly Dancing, The Usual Happy Hour, White Lies, and a Ray Charles Tribute
On Friday’s Look Ahead, I predicted this past weekend would be a leisure sucking vampire. I was right. It was fun. I’d do it again. What else? A tornado killed 89 people and wreaked horrible destruction in Joplin, Missouri, the Mississippi continues it’s flooding, President Obama’s armored car got stuck on ramp in Ireland, and stocks are down. How’s about another look into the future?

We’ve been featuring a lot of music on these Look Aheads. Maybe that’s because we enjoy music so damn much. We also enjoy those things that accompany music. Case in point – dancing. I can’t claim any skills. That’s why I figured taking a class or two might be the thing to do. A male belly dancer, no. I’ll let the females have this one. For the men, they’ve got Flamenco. Check out the site.
HAPPY HOUR AT THE USUAL
It’s a Monday Happy Hour with reasonable prices at a casual bar on Washington. This be a trinket of knowledge should you find yourself in that area. Wham-lama-ding-dong.
